Play Tribute Movie

Lynlee Scott Nicholas, 59, of Austin, Texas, awoke in the arms of Jesus Saturday, May 16, 2020.

Lynlee was born August 19, 1960, in Dallas, Texas. She was the daughter of George Harvey and Gwendolyn Scott Brownlee of Lancaster, Texas. Lynlee earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Baylor University and received her Master’s in Education from Texas Women’s University.

She is survived by her son, George Joseph Nicholas of Dallas, Texas; sister and husband, Susan and Don Snowden; nieces, nephews, and many close friends all of whom she loved and touched deeply. Lynlee was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Sarah Brownlee.

Early in her career, Lynlee was employed as an English teacher in both the Carrollton and Plano Independent School Districts. For the majority of her 25-year marriage to George Francis Nicholas, she was a stay at home mom. Most recently, Lynlee was a teacher at the Huntington Learning Center of Austin, Texas.

First and foremost, Lynlee was a dedicated and loving mother who treasured her son George and embraced every moment with him. She had a vivacious personality and always found a way to make people laugh. Lynlee was a great listener and was genuinely interested in hearing what others had to say. During her life she was an avid horseback rider, tennis player and loved English literature.

A trip to Israel had a profound effect in strengthening Lynlee’s faith and love for the Lord. She tried to live as we are instructed in Ephesians 4:32 – “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ”.

The family would like to thank the love of Lynlee’s life, former husband, George F. Nicholas for his caring compassion and immense help in the planning of the service to celebrate Lynlee. His ability to see the needs and his calming demeanor have eased the stress during this exceedingly difficult time.

I've been searching for days for pictures of Lynlee from our college and post college days, and from our time spent together in recent years. But I can't find any yet. What I did unearth were lots of letters from her. One of the beautiful things about being friends in the 80s was that email and texting wasn't around yet! And as Lynlee and I were both English majors and would be writers, we wrote all the time. Her letters and postcards were hilarious and we loved being as off the wall as we possibly could be.

I remember one time in Dallas about 12 years ago, she pulled out a box from a closet full of letters from me -- we sat on the floor and howled laughing at how ridiculous we were in our 20s. That's what I did yesterday -- sat on the floor and read through letters and postcards and laughed and cried.

One of the things we shared was a love of music. My times with her listening to music are some of my favorite memories, and the concerts we attended together were epic: Psychedelic Furs, Coldplay, Radiohead. I have so many memories of driving down the roads in Dallas singing and laughing.

Being counted as one of Lynlee's friends was a true gift. There was no one like her. I was blessed to have known her mom and dad and to have spent a lot of time in their home, and so I know where she got all her love, kindness and humor. My mother and her mom were dear friends, so we shared many memories and intersecting worlds.

I have wonderful memories of beautiful days with George, Georgie and Sarah in FL, and cherish those memories always.
I am sending all my love to her sister, Susan, and to both Georges. My heart is broken and I will never ever forget my dear friend who I loved with all my heart.

God speed, Lynlee. You made an impact on this world and we thank you for it.

We have been filled with such sadness at the loss of our friend Lynnlee. She was like family to us. It was a wonderful time in all our lives when we shared the most time with Lynnlee. We were young and optimistic while starting a new adventure together. I was dating Claudia and Lynlee was dating George. We ended up getting married within months of each other, buying our first house and having our first child. Lynlee was our son Conor's godmother and we never imagined life without her. One time over the Christmas holidays when Lynlee and George stayed with us I remember little George asking if he was godcousins with our kids and of course we said yes. Lynnlee was smart, funny, easy to talk to and a free spirit. We are so fortunate to have had her in our lives during what will be remembered as some of our best days. I so much wish that I could have talked to her one more time to tell her how much she always meant to us. Some losses are harder than others and this one truly impacts us. All the to her family. Wade and family.

George when we first met we became friends instantly. Your caring, fun, outgoing personitly is amazing. When I met your mom in the UP and when I stayed with you in Dallas for a week it was clear to me you got these wonderful traits from you mom. She always made me, and everyone that was around, so comfortable and happy and I know thats what made her happy. Keep strong, She will be forever missed.

As I read these memories, I cry but smile too. Grateful to see a glimpse of her last several years, always the dog lover, so much fun and a wonderful friend.
I miss her, wish we could have one more lunch, tennis game...
Rest now In the arms of Jesus, your spirit has left its mark in this world.
Love,
Amy

I’ve spent the week looking at pictures and texts, reminiscing over so many good times together. We were tennis teammates and became friends quickly as Lynlee’s magnetism was special. I know I’m not alone in that experience as I read these other tributes to her. 💗

Lynlee was smart and I’m so glad she found her way back to teaching in Austin. That was important to her & I’m sure her students loved her!

She was funny and unpredictable, with a sweet spirit and a fragility that was often masked. She was a pretty competitive tennis player
although we had a beautiful, close group for over 20 years and she provided lots of laughs on and off the tennis courts. 😉

One of my last texts with Lynlee was on April 13th and she described how she & Melissa were quarantining together and had ordered a Kadima paddle ball set. Lynlee said she was getting pretty good & was planning a tennis team comeback! We all would have welcomed that!

Lynlee had a heart of gold, showed kindness to everyone, and had a strong faith. I know she is at peace and I will miss her until we meet again. 😔

To young George & George....My heart is there with you this weekend. I’m so sorry that I’m not. 💗

George,
I am very sorry about your Mom’s passing. She was kind and always fun to talk to. I remember her graciousness and Texas charm—and her enthusiasm for horseback riding and her dogs! I admired her religious convictions. I am glad you had such a loving mother. She was so proud of you and loved you so much. I am sorry she is no longer with us. Thinking of you and your Dad at this sad time.

Lynlee was my best friend at Baylor. We were always together and laughing. Her love of literature was so infectious and I learned to love it thru her; especially poetry. Lynlee once wrote a poem about me called All-Is-On! I wish I had it to share.
Lynlee’s infectious laugh, wit and love of people, especially her family, drew many of us to her. Lynlee and I belonged to a great fraternity , The Taurus Society, as Little Sisters. We had many wonderful memories of Baylor and Taurus.
As Lynlee and I reconnected 4 years ago it was as though no time had gone by and it was magic. She was so in love with her family and especially her ‘Georgie’. Lynlee’ s faith in Christ was genuine and a great comfort to me. I will miss her deeply and treasure all my memories of her. Love and prayers to Georgie, Susan, Don and family and George.

I worked with Ms. Lynnlee at Huntington, and I loved how much she loved our kids. She loved Shakespeare even more than I do, and went last year with my boyfriend (another teacher) and me to Shakespeare in the Park. We had so much fun trying to explain to Steven what the play was about:) I loved the kids' description of her. The pretty blonde with flowing clothes. Her style was like no one else's, and she wore it effortlessly. She was loved and will be so missed.

I loved Lynlee! She was my son-in-laws aunt and she texted me often to see how
I was. She loved animals and one dog in particular (Hershey) will miss their runs together! He would get so excited when she walked thru the door! I know she is now in Gods hands and her Sister Sarah was waiting on her! She was so proud of her son and when I would see her she would update me on his accomplishments.
My love and condolences to her family!!
